Hello from Spain!!
My name is Jose, I live in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands while on business travel a lot by the Iberian peninsula, now I am in Madrid.
I tell you my story a bit, I've had many cars and this is my first Alfa Romeo 156 is a Phase I 2.4jtd besides also I have a fiat bravo 1.9 jtd, bmw 328i and a e36 coupe.
2 months ago I bought the car crashed by 500, the previous owner broke his collar clutch, and ended up breaking the envelope of the gearbox.
I started to repair it, and after a futile search of the gearbox in scrap yards, I found one of a 1.9jtd, which is outwardly the same, the only thing that changes are internal developments, also mounted a ceramic clutch and restore several pieces such as suspension, I rode a sport bilstein with springs Novitec-4cm, and some wheels mille miglia action in 17 "with Hankook Ventus tires in 215/45/17.
And I keep thinking of more things to put right now I'm turning to adapt a double din screen by changing the dashboard hehe.
I hope to learn much in this forum.
Sorry for my English, it is painful ...
